Kiss Me, Kate

Directed by: Jeff Packer
Music Director: Mary Williams
Choreography: Nick Cooper

KISS ME, KATE tells the tale of two once-married, now-divorced musical theater actors, egotistical leading man Fred Graham and Lilli Vanessi, who are forced to perform opposite each other in a Broadway-bound musical version of William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, in the roles of Petruchio and Katharina.

As the battle of the sexes continues onstage and off, it becomes clear that as much as this couple profess to hate each other, they are also still in love. Throw a number of cases of mistaken identity, some gangsters, and additional romantic entanglements into the mix. In classic musical comedy fashion, madness ensues.

KISS ME, KATE – Cole Porter’s dazzling Broadway classic – earned the Tony’s very first award for Best Musical.
